Owner + Lead Planner: Amberley Adams-Thomas
"Howdy! I am Amberley Adams-Thomas, the proud owner of Blue Boot Events. For as long as I can remember, I have had a passion for organizing and executing events.
My heart has always belonged to Austin, TX; so in 2011 I made the move from La Porte, TX. Two years later, I completed my AAS in Hospitality Management specializing in Meeting and Events at Austin Community College.
After graduation I moved back to the Houston area to start my career in meetings and events. I was working with venues and conventions, but Austin was calling me home. I returned in 2014, then shortly after I met my husband and my happily ever after began.
Finding my forever home gave me the push to make my life’s dream come true and create Blue Boot Events. With my wide range of experience in wedding planning, nonprofit planning, conventions, restaurants, hotels, venues, event rentals, photography, and even wedding dresses, I feel that Blue Boot Events is my life’s calling.
My overall goal with Blue Boot Events is to make every event I am involved with an amazing experience. I want your event to be a life long memory you will forever cherish. I put my heart and soul in to my work and making your upcoming event a day you’ll never forget is what drives me every day."
